Professional statement

Jessica Biles is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker serving NY and NJ. Many of Jessica’s clients come to treatment to address relationship issues, symptoms of depression or anxiety that have become too overwhelming, low self-esteem, life transitions, behavioral/school challenges, trauma or loss. Jessica builds genuine and strong relationships with her clients, and uses humor and a non-judgmental stance to help her clients address topics and feelings that can be hard to talk about.

Jessica’s approach is rooted in evidence-based interventions that she tailors to meet each client's needs. Using her in-depth knowledge of Psychoanalytic Theory, Jessica helps her clients increase their self understanding and ability to respond constructively to deep seated relational patterns. Jessica also integrates concrete coping and mindfulness techniques to help her clients manage daily stressors. Using CBT, Jessica teaches about the connection between thoughts, feelings, and behaviors and helps clients learn healthier ways to solve problems. When working with children, Jessica also draws on Play Therapy to help them express themselves, engage in positive behavior changes, and uncover their inner strengths.

After receiving her MSW from New York University, Jessica completed in depth training at The Metropolitan Institute for Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy. Jessica is also a Nationally Certified Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapist, she has advanced training in Play Therapy, and she holds a certificate in the Creative Arts Therapies. But most of all, Jessica’s approach is guided by her compassion for people and a belief that we are resilient.


Message to clients

Sometimes even the strongest people need support to work through challenges. When you’ve come to the point where you welcome help to manage life’s stressors, therapy can feel like the most hopeful and positive time of your week.

Finding the right therapist can be uncomfortable and extremely overwhelming. I believe the most important factor in treatment is that you feel comfortable with your therapist. I welcome the opportunity to get to know you better and offer a free 15-20 minute phone consultation to see if I can be of help. If we don’t seem like the best fit, I will do my best to help you find the right therapist for you. Feel free to reach out to schedule a phone consultation, I really look forward to meeting you.
